Activists Decapitate Ronald McDonald Statue

Here’s one for the WTF category: A couple of artists in Helsinki kidnapped a Ronald McDonald statue from a local restaurant and made a video Al Qaeda style demanding McDonald’s to answer two simple question or they would behead the statue and put it on YouTube (videos after the jump).

  1. Why are you not open about the manufacturing process, raw materials and additives used in your products?
  2. How many tons of un-recycled waste you produce per year?

Of Course McDonald’s didn’t answer the questions and the Finnish Police arrested two of the artists and recovered the statue but the artists built a replica and decapitated and put the video on YouTube.

A McDonald’s spokesman had this to say:

McDonald’s is always available to engage in constructive conversations with our customers, stakeholders and the media. This stunt is in very poor taste and not a responsible approach to meaningful dialogue.

Meanwhile, we are focused on our customers and are fully transparent about our high quality food and industry-leading standards and practices.

So yeah…
